analyst mark murray. good morning, mark. >> good morning, alex. >> explain how the plan would work. >> most electoral votes across the country are apportioned by a win evener take all basis. for example, if a candidate wins the election in virginia, they get all the electoral votes. this was being considered in states like virginia, michigan, pennsylvania, the electoral votes would be apportioned by congressional district. and just to show you how much things would end up changing, due to all the gerrymandering with the concentration of a lot of democratic votes in urban areas to a handful of congressional districts, mitt romney would have had more electoral votes in the state of virginia, nine to barack obama's four, even though barack obama won the state by four percentage points. and 150,000 overall votes. >> that's the state of virginia and overall, you look at the numbers, romney would have gotten 273, obama, 262, if it had gone that way nationwide. that's an extraordinary change. but the question, this constitutional? >> it is. states are allowed to decide how their electoral
the senate. right now they have 45 seats. the democrats at 53. nbc news senior political editor mark murray joins me to talk more about this. mark, this puts a number of states in play now. we talk about west virginia after jay rockefeller's retirement and possibly south dakota, massachusetts as well. how possible is it for the gop to pick up six seats in 2014? >> it is possible. but it will be difficult. democrats are playing defense right now, thomas, given these retirements. but also just the terrain that the 2014 senate map will be on. there are democrats up for re-election in arkansas, alaska, louisiana. and now you end up having that open seat in west virginia. all of those four states haven't been hospitable territory for democrats in national elections, particularly presidential ones. but this is an eternity in politics. when november 2014 rolls around. there's a very long time. just two years ago no one thought democrats would be able to pick up senate seats at this point two years ago. at this point four years ago no one thought republicans would be having the very big november 20

everybody should watch first and foremost because of the unbelievable performances. bill murray is spectacular as fdr. he's almost unrecognizable as a comedian we've loved for decades. there's one little thing about this movie though. he was in a relationship with his distant cousin and that's what the movie kind of touches on. so it gets pretty crazy, and i was not prepared to see the great fdr in certain compromising positions. that's really throwing some people off. >> is it bill murray playing fdr, or is it a real fdr-like role? >> i think he's amazing. i think that he re-creates fdr in a time when daniel day-lewis is getting so many accolades for "lincoln." we should be talking about bill murray, as well. he's extraordinary. >> high praise. so what's it getting on the tomato meeter? >> well, i personally loved this movie because it took larger than live figures and made them very normal and accessible. critics aren't agreeing with me. it's 40% rotten right now. >> oh, that's not very good. >> i know, too shock i guess. >> who do you predict will be the best actor and best a
. >>> before the presidential election, we discussed business owners. murray energy joao robert murray told employees if they did not give money, their jobs would be in jeopardy. in midsummer he said the company would shut down the plant, the red bird west mine which employed 56 people because of the president's policies. murray is starting to hire at the mine, again. the company denies reopening a plant and will hire back 42 or 43 people for a drawdown that will take place over the next several years. so, what you should know for the week coming up. it is now illegal to unlock your smartphone if you purchased it after saturday. unlocking or cracking a phone is a process to use your phone on any cell network, not just the one to which it is contractually tied. they granted an exemption to the act to allow them to engage in the practice. wireless carriers could sue consumer who is purchase and unlock their phones. this is a copyright regime that is broken and dysfunctional. the resume of the president's choice to head up the security and exchange commission. she's a federal prosecutor with e
to budget chair murray. we're going to do a budget this year. and it's going to have revenues in it. and our republican colleagues better get used to that fact. >> senator cruz? >> david, i'll mention there was an area of substantial agreement with what chuck just said. he said we should never, ever compromise the full faith and credit of the united states. i agree. and in fact, there is a bill that i am co-sponsoring, the full faith and credit act, which provides that, regardless of what happens to the debt ceiling, the united states will always, always, always meet its debt. we will never default on its debt. that was introduced in 2010. it didn't pass because harry reid and president obama didn't want it to pass. they wanted to raise the specter of a default to use. so, chuck, you and i could make news right now on national television, would you agree to support the full faith and credit act and take the possibility of a default off the table? >> i support the mcconnell proposal. let us raise the debt ceiling. no strings attached. and if the president can raise it as he should be able to
, lousing murray colevin, anthony shadid, having a friend and colleague, austin tice taken and now it's now five months with no news. that's really, really hard. and it has made this conflict like an inbelieveably difficult one to cover and that's just on your personal level. then you take into account your experiences when are you living in these places. because it's not like a normal sinarrio where you stay in a hotel and a driver and shuttle back and forth every day, are you living in these people's house. i have been sleeping in a room where the people who were killed during the day are underneath the room, now he in the garage awaiting their burial the next morning. i was in a room with women having tea when news that one of their brothers had been killed. and i'm in the room with them while they're screaming and crying and ripping out their hair. and that, and you're living with these peoplement and they are giving you shelter and food. and as a human being, that is really, really, really wrenching. i mean it's incredibly-- we talk so much about the logistical challenges of covering s
. i've talked to leader reid. budget claire murray. we're going to do a budget this year, and it's going to have revenues in it. and our republican colleagues better get used to that. >> so this is still a fight between how much spending cuts and how much taxes. the president got his -- >> well, simpson 3w0-bowles sai let's get rid of the high tax rates. the president doesn't want that. you had $1 trillion in tax increases with obama care. new tax increases at the beginning of this month. and now they are calling for even more tax increases, and they are not calling to cut spending. they are calling for spending increases. so basically what they're saying is, they want americans to pay more so washington can spend more. that's not going to help the economy, and that is not going to close the gap and balance the budget. the reason we want to balance the budget is not to make the numbers add up. we think that's necessary for growth and opportunity. we think it's necessary to make sure that our kids don't get this debt that they won't be able to handle if we keep going down the path
of appearance and i have here senator murray. we will go back and forth and senator bald plan frank and murphy, mikulski, white house and warren, so i would now recognize senator murray. >> thank you very much mr. sherman for holding this important hearing. and it is i think especially important to know obviously the issue of newtown but this is an issue a lot of us have been working on for a long time, ourselves included and i think it is a great time to focus and i appreciate that and senator alexandre, we welcome you as the new ranking member position and look forward to working with you and all the new members it's great to have you on this committee and there is a lot of great talent here. i think that we will really be able to do some good things on this committee. succumb thank you very much and to both of the witnesses as well. i did want to go back to the senator harkin has mentioned several times that in the president's recent release ghana violance package she issued three provisions. one clarifying for medicaid managed care plan and one saying that it would be included in the final
be very difficult. harry reid said it will be patry murray in charge of the budget to deal with these other issues. >> so the president -- one of the president's top priorities is global warming. and you're saying that's probably not going to pass through a democratic senate. what about gay marriage? what about gay marriage bills? what's the likelihood? this is another top priority for the president. the president has a democratic senate. what's the likelihood of the democratic senate, under the leader some of of harry reid, passing sweeping -- i'm just asking, you don't think so? >> there's a bill that promotes the constitutional right to gay marriage. that's not going anywhere, obviously. everybody's waiting for the supreme court. >> mark halperin, let me ask you the same thing, the president's top priorities that were laid out. we hear that republicans are going to be obstructionist. what is the likelihood of us getting sweeping global warmi i legislation or gay marriage legislation? >> i think i know where this is going. >> actually, you understand my point. the point i
the majority has decided to pass a budget. the new budget chairman, senator murray, said yesterday that her committee will draft a budget. now let's let the senate produce a budget. let's have a budget drawn up. let's have a budget debated. let's figure out what our plans are. budgets lay out plans and we'll see if a budget that a majority in the senate would vote for will pass the straight-face test with the american people. we'll see if this is just another budget that says, okay, here's the amount of money we'd like to spend. it has no relationship to the amount of money we have. let's let that be our budget. the people -- people will no longer tolerate, i'm convinced, the amount of debt and taxes that the spending plan would require. but for them to really think about that, they have to have a spending plan, and i am grateful that the house passed legislation that says we have to have that -- that plan. when the majority in the senate, democrats in the senate have a budget, we'll see how they feel about continuing to attack the budget that the house has been willing to come up with for
journalist john murray. welcome back. chris brown, first of all, on probation. so if this is all true, all these allegations, we're talking some trouble, are we not? >> yes. and he just got a stern warning, brooke, in november from his probation officer where the judge gave him a stern warning because he had a positive drug test. so, you know, chris keeps getting lucky. every six months there is an incident. last summer, the bar brawl with rapper drake. then the cell phone snatching incident with a fan in miami. before that, something else. it is just, like, you know, the blowup at "good morning america," he just can't seem to stay out of trouble. >> what's going on? why? he's talented. >> i'm call iing on iylana van zan zandt. let me give you the back story here. this relationship started two years ago, they started having some tension here. so some of chris' associates who said they were his cousins recorded a video of them trying to fight frank following him in a car and the video went viral. this relationship has been combustible for quite some time and it sounds like at the studio eve

they will put forward a budget proposal, chuck schumer and patty murray and others are saying there will be new revenue in it. talk to mitch mcconnell said it's settled based on the raising of rates from the fiscal cliff deal, so there are some real divisions. and monday seems like a long, long time ago already. >> it certainly does. >> joe? >> yeah, mike. >> pick up on sam stein's point about immigration. today is a red-letter day on that issue. two signal events. one in today's "wall street journal," jeb bush, former florida governor, calls for comprehensive immigration reform. that's what the president wants. that's what democrats are pushing for and what republicans are resisting. jeb bush, one of the most powerful voices in the party, said they should go the president's way on that. fix it in a big bill. second, sam stein's colleague, john war, points out on huff post that marco rubio, florida senator, is very smartly trying to change the vocabulary of this debate, detoxify the term amnesty which has allowed talk radio, conservatives to dismiss almost any move on immigration. he's saying w
country. i think charles murray's book last year was very powerful way of laying out how it is spent this is a very peculiar problem that we face because we all talk about this. i think we're all of him had even if you're not a hardline social conservative. you safe information. and yet we don't see, what we haven't seen, charles alluded to this lastly, are the social dislocation talks of this. that is to say, when we started "the weekly standard" in 1995, the worst, very good piece, but would make you laugh if you would like to look at it was by a criminologist and sociologist was called here come the super predators. and the argument was that we had created a generation of 17-year-olds, youth, whose fathers had been in prison, never seen a strong family, none of that. and basically they were on the way to creating a crime wave the likes of which we had never seen. that is one of the great humbling moments of my life as an editor. wonderful piece, perfectly argued and it made absolute sense at the time that we published it. and it was so wildly wrong that it's not 18 years later. yo
